Husband and wife’s bodies found in New Brighton were murder-suicide, police say

Two bodies discovered Saturday by police in a New Brighton apartment complex has been ruled a murder-suicide by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police were called to Granite Falls at Silver Lake apartments, 2160 County Road E. about 7:30 a.m. after a witness called police from a nearby gas station reporting seeing a man with a gun and hearing a gun shot.

Responding officers found Mainhia Yang, 34, in the couple’s apartment dead from an apparent gunshot wound to the head. While executing a search warrant of an unattached garage on the property, investigators found her husband Ge Vang, 51, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot.

Police had only one previous police call for service to the apartment in April 2015 for assisting the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Police Department with a warrant that was not used. There was no contact with the residents of the unit.

Prior police contacts with the suspect were traffic related, including a property damage motor vehicle crash reported in October 2018 and a citation issued in December 2014 for driving after revocation and failure to provide proof of insurance.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension assisted with the investigation.
